Another Independence Day has come and gone. But, as with past celebrations of America’s founding, there was a deluge of anti-American sentiment coming from the hard left.

Leftists who rail against America are conspicuously quiet when it comes to laying out specific objectives. Take racism, for example; since racial bias can never truly be wholly extinguished,
